Every summer in Seattle we are fortunate to, not only, have awesome weather, but to also be invited to an equally awesome music presentation from Universal Music Group. Universal Label Representative from all parts are present for a showcase of up-and-coming artists from the label group.

This year the showcase was held at one of Seattle’s great venues, The Triple Door. The venue is the perfect size for a showcase. It offers a more romantic seating and stage arrangement, as well as a separate lounge area for guests to mingle with performers, local music professionals, Label Representatives…all while enjoying a delicious catered lunch.

The showcase exposed us to some current trendies as well as up-and-comers, with live performances by:
